I have a 3ltr Grandeur XG, First registered Jan. 2000 and done 138000km.
For some cosiderable time now I have had an intermittent fault whereby my TC and ABS warning lights come on simultaneously and remain on until I switch off the ignition. When I switch on again the fault is gone and may not return for several days. Though it is becoming more frequent of late.
Today I was able to call in to my local Hyundai Service Bay with the warning lights on and the diagnostics showed:
C1200 Front left speed sensor, open or short circuit
C1203 Front Right speed sensor, open or short circuit
C2402 Motor Pump
C1611 CAN Timeout EMS

The local technician says this looks like an ECM ( Electronic Control Module) problem. Replacement part costs about $2000 and may not fix the problem! The car is in good condition, no rust, runs beautifully and I love it; but it is 10 years old and the current trade in value is just $3000.
What is your best advice?

If he thinks a $2k ecm is his only option then I doubt he will fix it. But if you want one from the US let me know. The dealer tech should be able to temporaritly test a known good ecm before actually selling it to you or he's lazy, dumb or not allowed to do so.

sbr711 is an unknown quantity at this point
Skip the ABS repair... better things to do with that kind of money,, the car is operating on plain old brakes like cars of past.

Invest that the money in something that will appreciate, like a house payment or 2, kids education fund...

Took the car in next day and they checked error codes (still waiting for the exact code details) and was told it was an ABS warning that had triggered the lights but there was nothing wrong with the ABS, it was "a glitch" that happens now and then.
